I'm holding my head up high. I know my dreams will touch the sky...

These words were written by teenage singer-songwriter Wé McDonald. As a timid young girl with a soft, squeaky speaking voice, Wé was often bullied and had few friends. She just didn't fit in.

Written in Wé McDonald's own words, The Little Girl with the Big Voice is a captivating story about a young girl who courageously embraces her uniqueness and discovers her true voice, no matter what others think or say. Wé's story inspires kids to work to fulfill their dreams and to expand their own understanding of themselves and the world around them.

“The Little Girl with the Big Voice” is an inspiring children’s book. It’s based on a true story and about a little girl who comes from a family who loves music. Unfortunately, she is bullied by others constantly for her squeaky voice and her name.  She doesn’t really have any friends and she wants to make a change in order to fit in. She even tried to be a bully herself but soon realized that this didn’t make her feel any better.

When the talent show rolled around, she doesn’t let the bullying stop her from being herself and singing on the stage. She even gets enough courage to enroll in a program with other kids who love music just as much as she does. For the first time, she found someplace that she fits in. She continues her journey throughout her life, making friends, singing at Apollo Theater, and even getting on “The Voice”.

This is definitely a good book to read to any child who is insecure about themselves, or feeling withdrawn from others. It is an empowering story. Whether it be their voice, a talent like dancing, drawing or anything that they are passionate about. I found this book to be very interesting and I actually looked up her performance on “The Voice”. You probably won’t be surprised about this, but it was amazing. I love how this book teaches kids not to give up and encourages them to never let anyone break their spirit.
